The old road/trail to Queen Mountain, Joshua Tree ...
and The Arctic Circle
lie scattered across the base of Queen Mountain and although separated by distance and rugged terrain both are easily visited in a day if motivated.
The rock here here varies considerably from light-colored and grainy at the The Arctic Circle
to smooth and dark at The Wastelands
which gives a taste of what the The Underground
is all about.

(V1), Intrusion Face
(V1), The Reacharound
(V1 R), It's Da Oooze
(V1+), Survivalist (V2), Tinkerbell's Anus
(V2), Particle Accelerator (V3), Moral Wasteland
(V3), Whips, Chains and Lox
(V3), Side Dish (V4), Poker in the Front

SDS at the blunt arete with a left hand edge and right hand pinch and power up to a tricky highstep and then finish up fun face past horizontal slashes. Can be done from a standing start at V0-.* This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
